Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham (2001)
Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham is the story of an Indian family headed by a business tycoon, Yashovardhan Raichand (Amitabh Bachchan) and his wife Nandini (Jaya Bachchan) who have raised their sons, Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) and Rohan (Hrithik Roshan), showering them with love and affection. When Rahul finds out that he is adopted at the tender age of 8, it becomes the reason for his undending gratitude for his parents. His father's every wish becomes a command for Rahul. A command he never breaks -- until the day he falls in love with Anjali (Kajol) a young boisterous girl who is a complete misfit in the high society world of the Raichand's. When his father disowns Rahul, he taks Anjali and her little sister Pooja (Kareena Kapoor) and leaves for London.

Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham (Bonus Disc) (2001)
When forbidden love tears a tightly-knit Indian family apart, a mother's heartbreak prompts her son to reunite the shattered clan in this family drama from filmmaker Karan Johar. Business tycoon Yashovardhan Raichand (Amitabh Bachchan) has everything a man could ever want; a loving family, a thriving empire, and a beautiful wife. When Yashovardhan's son Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) discovers that he is adopted, he expresses his gratitude through unwavering devotion and unending loyalty until the day that he falls in love with a boisterous young outcast named Anjali (Kajol). Disowned by his father and left to his own devices, Rahul gathers Anjali and her young sister Pooja (Kareena Kapoor) and sets his sights on London. As the grief of Rahul's mother becomes too much to bear, Rahul's brother Rohan sets out to find his brother and reunite their fragmented family. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

endless surreal tearjerker by skybrian March 4, 2003 - 10:04 PM PST

It's a big-budget musical about an extremely rich Indian family where a father disowns his son, and the emotional consequences for the family. Very exaggerated and stylized to the point of being surreal with MTV-like dance numbers, beautiful women and fancy cars. (For someone who hasn't been to India, the part set in London brings this out especially as a nearly unrecognizable funhouse reflection of western culture.) Despite it all, the core story is simple and excellent performances make it emotionally compelling, even when dragged out for an incredible length. Got me crying anyway.

(The title means "Sometimes Happy Sometimes Sad".)
